After only seven game starts resulting in five losses for the 2015 Indianapolis Colts, quarterback Andrew Luck is done for the season.
Multiple injuries — most notably a lacerated kidney — have plagued the fourth-year signal caller, whose season ends with 1,881 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Luck completed only 55.3 percent of his passes compared to his career-high 61.7 mark in 2014.
Speaking on a season he would certainly like to sweep under the mat, Luck shared his mindset via Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star.
“Football players want to play football. You feel like you’re letting your teammates down and letting other people down.”
With the team’s chances at making the postseason about 3,300-1, a tidy end to a massively underwhelming season overall for Luck may be just what the doctor ordered for the Colts.
Luck is unarguably one of the best younger quarterbacks in the NFL, so he’s still poised for a major payday after his injury-filled campaign. Granted, the numbers are something that Luck will have to iron out with the Colts, who need their quarterback to rebound to his usual self next year.
